093: Why Remain Catholic in the Face of Abuse? (w/ Faith Hakesley)

093: Why Remain Catholic in the Face of Abuse? (w/ Faith Hakesley) January 20, 2021

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I’m joined by speaker, blogger, author, and survivor of clerical sexual abuse, Faith Hakesley to share her story and how and why we can (and should!) hang on to our Catholic faith even in the face of horrific abuses.

It’s a great conversation and Faith was a great person to have it with. She is incredibly compassionate, straight-forward, and has some incredible insights for all Catholics–everywhere!

For more from Faith visit her website. Her fantastic book Glimmers of Grace: Peace and Healing Following Sexual Abuseis out now from Our Sunday Visitor.
